Why we love Hemp Seed Oil?
Natural oils in all their forms have been used for centuries, from Ancient Egypt, Israel, Sumeria, China to Rome. Cleopatra was known for the essential oil applications in her beauty regime and healers from every culture around the world have looked for the medicinal properties in plants.
At Rocha Natural Products nothing has changed. We still look to plants and the oils that they produce to nourish and protect our skin. We simply love oils. Not only for their nutritional benefits but also for the way they feel on our skin, luxurious and pampered not to mention the wonderful aroma’s they produce.
One of our favourites is Hemp Seed Oil. It is a beautiful warm green oil with a nutty fragrance extracted from the seeds of the hemp/cannabis plant. Because of its many benefits, it is considered a super-food for the skin, therefore, we simply just had to include it into almost all of our products.
The amazing benefits of Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp Seed Oil is nourishing, moisturizing, calming and rejuvenating. It plumps the skin and works to produce a younger looking complexion.
It balances the skin and helps fight acne: Hemp oil is loaded with vitamins, minerals and Omega 6 and 3 fatty acids. It is non-comedogenic which means it does not clog your pores and because it is rich in fatty acids it helps to moderate sebum and excess oil production, thus balancing your skin and preventing it from being dry or too oily It is perfect for young and mature skin.
Anti-inflammatory: The fatty acids have anti-inflammatory qualities which calms inflamed skin caused by acne. Fatty acids also help to produce the skin’s natural oil barrier which protects against the natural elements.
Anti-aging and skin regeneration: Our bodies can’t produce linoleic and oleic acids (omega 9) it is therefore important that we include these acids into our daily diet as well as into our skincare routine as they help to fight signs of aging. Hemp also contains magnesium, potassium, vitamins B1, B2, Vitamin E and lipids, these stimulate collagen production which helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The omega 6 contains gamma-lonolenic acid (GLA) which encourages skin growth and new cell generation. GLA is also known to nourishes and repair.
Healing qualities: There has been reviews that claim that it has been used to assist in the treatment of eczema, dermatitis and inflammatory skin conditions. It is said that hemp seed oil also strengthens the skin and enables it to fight infection, this may be as a result of the nutritional elements, vitamins and fats in the oils.
Hemp seed oil is nourishing, moisturizing, calming and rejuvenating. It plumbs the skin and works to produce a younger looking complexion. We love what it does to the skin.
